When it’s warm out, I love lemons!  Lemons in my iced tea, fresh squeezed lemonade, and… these Lemon cookies made with Fresh Lemons!  I absolutely love how these easy-to-make lemon cookies are made with real ingredients, aren’t too sweet, and have the perfect amount of lemon flavor in them.  If you love lemons, this is the perfect treat for you!

  1. These are delicious. Second batch tonight. Increased the lemon juice to 2 tablespoons. Yum. Made them for my cousin who can not have eggs or dairy. Thank you

  2. I am so excited for these fresh summer flavours, and these cookies are the perfect way to use citrus. I can’t wait to munch on a big batch of these!

  3. I love lemon sweet treats! But I don’t think I’ve ever had lemon cookies. These sound so good and perfect for spring!
